The Australian Sailing and Cruising Club is a club for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people and their friends in Sydney and across Australia. We welcome boats and boaters of all types – sail, power, dinghy, windsurf, kite, kayak – if it floats, you’re welcome to join in!
The Club is based in Sydney and organises regular events during the year both on the water and the land – guests and visitors to Sydney are welcome – you don’t have to own a boat to be a member.
Our Social meetings are held at 7.30 pm on the third Tuesday of each month at the Lord Roberts Hotel, 64 Stanley St, East Sydney, upstairs in a function room between the restaurant and the terrace. All are welcome.
Note also, that is the weather is good on other weekends, there is a decent chance that some member’s will be taking their boats out for an “unofficial” event, usually planned last minute, once forecasts are available.
Another great weekend is forecast at one of the prettiest bays of Sydney harbour.
And you can join it for all or as much of it as you like as there are pathways leading to the water (Bay Track from Seaforth Oval) where you can get picked up at the pontoon.
Or go you can get there by Kayak – either rent one from Sydney Harbour Kayaks at the Spit Bridge or if you have your own Kayak, you can launch from the Kayak ramp at Davidson Park on the Eastern side of the Roseville Bridge. Other alternatives are Clive Park or Clontarf.
Full details in the email update.
So those of us who decided not to sit at home and doing the laundry or DIY on ANZAC day had a fabulous day at Athol Bay Beach for a picnic with a fabulous view of the harbour.
The forecast was spot on at 22 Deg but it was even warmer in the brilliant sunshine – so it was ideal picnic weather. And some even went swimming as the water is still warm – even one of the dogs swam from the boat to the shore to join in.
